President’s Update December 2021

2021 has been an exceptional year for our industry and association.  We had an excellent annual conference in Colorado Springs.  Our motto for the conference was “Re-engagement” and the event lived up to that idea.  We have seen growth within our industry while dealing with COVID 19, labor shortages and supply chain issues.  It has been my pleasure and honor completing my term as President of the CSSGA Board of Directors over the past two years.  The aggregate industry is made up resilient people, their integrity and commitment has shown us that we have a lot of good years yet to come.  I would like to thank Todd Ohlheiser and his staff for their hard work, the CSSGA board of directors, the membership and the CRMCA Board under Cole Jacobs leadership for their steadfast support and partnership.  Have a safe and prosperous Holiday Season!
